It’s difficult to know what to make of this claim as there are few details other than what is printed in the article.

One thing to consider is that this unfortunate accident, especially to someone so young, is that the injury is not uncommon. Passengers are hurt, sometimes quite seriously, on cruise ships each and every week.

From slip and fall accidents to swimming pool accidents, the list of potential mishaps is long and varied. And whether this particular injury claim is a valid one (or not) it is important to let experienced lawyers determine whether your claim is of substance. Quite often, injured passengers do not contact attorneys and, either lose out on compensation altogether for their injuries or get far less than they deserve.
